also e-mail us. we're asking you this morning your advice for the second obama administration. isedobama speech rate stark choices, says the new york times. we would like to hear from you this morning, what you think republican options are and what your advice is. here's what's happening on capitol hill today. house gop poised to extend the debt limit. that's the headline in "usa today." the bill would buy time and would set the stage for a physical fight. house republicans are scheduled to vote today to extend a $16.40 trillion at the opening salvo in a renewed battle this year to pass a federal budget and reduce the debt. the headline in the washington times, the front page looks like this -- the reporter on that story and joins us now from the "washington times. good morning and thanks for being with us. guest: thanks for having me. host: when do we expect the vote and why is it significant? guest: because we are fresh off the president's inauguration, it is significant. the fight over the debt ceiling in many ways has defined the last two years as far as spending, because
that is happened over the last four years, helping the obama administration, our president, vice president with their agenda, with talking about the needs for more jobs and courts, and i've been amazed she understood the health care law better than anyone and willing to share talking points with me when i couldn't understand the confusion some were creating because they had not read the bill, but she did, and, of course, my most amazing time with debbie was throughout the republican primary process when we would show up and in iowa, new hampshire, and other places, often looking weird being in a sea of republicans, and i said, you know, the only way to fit in is we just wear red and pretend to be sarah palin. [laughter] of course, both of us could see cuba from where we lived. [applause] of course, we went to the republican national convention. she was in florida so when the hurricane tried to blow through, not now, not here, leave. she stopped that hurricane from blowing through there. amazing woman. i can tell you that much. i'm also happy to announce my support for my leader and return
of an obama-biden administration? well, a vast majority say, according to the latest fox news opinion poll. what do you think of government spending, is it managed carefully or out of control? right now 83% of you say it's out of control. back in april of 2009, when they were just getting started with the stimulus, 62. so, it's gone up 21% in about the last four years. >> alisyn: i find that wording, also amusing. who thinks the government spending is being managed carefully. 11% is actually the shocking number. >> the shocking word is managed. >> alisyn: and carefully. >> a fire hose of cash. i will say the best thing the president can do for his legacy and starting to talk, i don't think that the president needs a library and now talking he wants a library maybe in chicago. talking about his legacy, most important thing he could do is tax reform and deficit control. if he could put those two things together, that'd be bigger than health care. >> steve: you know what? if he were to work with the republicans talking reform-- >> i think that's a lock for next year. >> steve: well, he wants
for service, has the obama administration done a lot to lower the cost of health care going forward so we don't need to do much more? what do you think is in practical terms what needs to be done on health care if you poll people they say we all want to cut medicare celerity want to go dealing with that piece of the puzzle? >> that reminds me when i was in graduate school i went to study foreign policy and was right around the time they balanced the budget and i thought my gosh what am i going to do? so i realized the long-term problems were still there and i had to make a choice whether social security or health care and it was easy, social security is easy supply jumped into becoming a social security expert because health care is so hard. they're really is no other issue at the core of all of this. we don't know the answers and the best thing that we can do right now is putting in place as many different attempts to control health care costs and evaluating what works so we don't with a fork or not we've seen the costs coming down, and that could be in anticipation that could be temporary a
of america's mental health care services. officials from the obama administration examine current challenges focusing on the relationship between mental health and gun violence. this is 2.5 hours. >> of the committee on health and education will please come to order. my first order of business this morning is to extend a warm welcome to our committees new members. i also want to salute our new ranking member, senator alexander. he is a valuable member of this committee. i have appreciated my relationship with a former ranking member. i look forward to the same kind of close collaboration partnership with my good friend. our committee will examine a range of issues surrounding mental health care in this country. the tragic shooting in connecticut last month brought the issue of mental health care to the forefront. many people across the nation have said we need to take a long look at access to mental health services across the country. i am pleased to have this opportunity to start the dialogue. i am told this is a first hearing that this committee of jurisdiction has had on this issue since
that in an inaugural address? >> it's a little bit surprising, but given his history, the obama administration's history with the repeal of don't ask, don't tell and also his revolution of gay marriage, it's not that surprising. >> what about you, greg? you were surprised he specifically mentioned stonewall. >> i was surprised that he mentioned stonewall because it's not something you hear when they talk about civil rights, especially from a president, so that really struck me when he said that. >> what do you think it does for gay people not only in this country but around the world? >> i hope it pushes us forward and makes us equal with everyone else, included with everyone else in the country. >> do you feel an additional sense of pride having heard the president mention that today? >> yes, i do. i really do. it makes me feel good to be an american right now and makes me think things will be better in the future. >> thanks pho boto both of you, thanks to the students from kentucky who stood around and waite waited. for you, it was really a speech about better equality? >> i think speeches a
years with the obama administration with cbs. we've seen the results of that conflict of interest play out when questions are asked. >> steve: where he writes in slate, the lefty blog u got to destroy the republican party. i guess he just wants one party which would essentially make it a dictatorship. in the article he's blaming all the woes in washington on those darn republicans. i guess he's forgotten about the do nothing democrats in the u.s. senate, who haven't passed a budget in three years. i guess he forgot about the fact that the republicans actually are now talking about voting tomorrow on extending the debt limit so there is not a fight. and about how about a month ago, they raised taxes on the rich. he's forgetting all about that. he's just trying to help barak obama with a successful four years. >> right. he makes this argument in piece that republicans have been the ones standing in the way of president obama's first term agenda. if i recall correctly, president obama has spent a lot of money, there hasn't been a lotting spending cuts at all, in fact. president obama got
administration. ms. hyde was nominated by president obama and confirmed by the u.s. senate in 2009 as the administrator of samhsa. she has served as a state mental health director, state human services director, city housing and human services director, as well as ceo of a private, nonprofit managed behavioral health firm. she is a member of or has served as consultant to many national organizations including the john d. and catherine t. macarthur foundation, the american college of mental health administration, and the united states department of justice. our second witness is no stranger to this committee. dr. thomas insel, director of the national institute of mental health at the national institutes of health. he has been director since the fall of 2002. prior to that, he was professor of psychiatry at emory university, and he was the founding director for the center of behavioral neuroscience, one of the largest science and behavioral centers funded by the national science foundation. he has published over 250 scientific articles and four books, including "biology of parental
barack obama as one of the areas where he has done significant work on behalf of the administration in this first four years and we'll continue on those interests going forward. it's an interesting thing jennifer in global diplomacy economics is becoming a far more meaningful element of global diplomacy. there is now an assistant secretary of state that focuses on energy issues, and i think senator kerry will continue this dialogue because it is really a foundation. hillary clinton promoted the concept of commercial diplomacy and i think senator kerry agrees with that emphasis. >> jennifer: i totally agree. we'll see what happens on keystone. but there is another issue that he'll have to deal with with respect to our place in the world, and that's the u.s.' use of drones. i guess they'll launch an investigation into u.s. drone policy. does the u.s. need to be more transparent on the issue in your opinion? >> i really do think so. and i think john brennan in his time at the white house, and presuming he moves over to the central intelligence agency, i think he philosophically has tha
economic recovery and economic prosperity in america. they feel president obama is not getting behind this surplus we have. you heard the caller touch upon that when he mentioned what happened, on the moratorium on drilling. it was contested in court and the administration lost that fight. there is a question about how much obama will get behind that. yesterday he talked about climate change and other things. i think the next four years may be tough for energy producers. guest: natural gas has become so plentiful and prices have come down so much that is changing a lot of the economics of the energy industry. that plays right into the question of climate change policy. to the degree that natural gas which is cleaner than coal begins to replace coal as the primary fuel for power plants, that reduces carbon emissions. all of these things are sort of working together. the administration keeps pointing out that oil and gas production is higher than it has ever been and that is true as the economy comes back but there is an inherent tension between some of this energy policy and a job poli
, and the administration lost that. the question about how much obama will get behind that. he did not mention it yesterday in his speech. he talked about climate change and suggested going in the opposite direction. the next four years may be a tough one for energy producers. guest: shall pass has become so plentiful and prices of it -- natural gas has become so plentiful and prices of it has come down so much it is changing the economics of the industry, which plays into the question of climate change policy. to the degree that natural gas which is cleaner than cold begins to replace coal as a primary fuel for power plants, that reduces carbon emissions. all of these things are sort of working together. the administration keeps pointing out that will and gas production is higher than it has ever been, and that is true as the economy comes back. there is an inherent tension between some of this energy policy and job policy. that is one of the reasons why obama takes every opportunity he can to point out this clean energy proposal, because don't wait politically that the white house sees an opportunity to
. the consensus that emerged was clear. as president obama said, there is one thing that we can do to reduce this violence, if there is one life that can be saved, we have an obligation to try. this is what drove the administration on a range of legislative remedies along with 23 executive actions to mass shootings and prevent gun violence. on wednesday president obama signed directives putting these into action. my colleagues and i will continue to do everything in our power to maximize and implement the recommendations for keeping our people safe for our cities and neighborhoods and schools secured. the ability to tackle this challenge depends on the willingness of americans to make a positive difference. we can begin calling for immediate action. as a president the president indicated, congress should move swiftly without legislation to strengthen our ability to keep criminals and other dangerous individuals from getting access to deadly weapons. we could do so today with the help of a licensed dealer. many licensed dealers throughout the country already facilitate firearms transfers betw
